Do you or your child need help applying for disability benefits?
Applying for federal Social Security disability benefits can be a challenge. Our advocates are available to help you navigate the application process and receive the benefits for which you are eligible through SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery).
What is SOAR?
SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) is a nationwide program designed to help people who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless and have a disability that is expected to last one year or more, apply for Social Security disability benefits.
SOAR seeks to end homelessness through increased access to SSI/SSDI income supports and also encourages employment as a means to increase individual income.
How We Can Help
Through KOOTASCA’S SOAR Program, certified navigators are able to help individuals confidentially navigate the application process of filing for Social Security Disability. The navigators will collect records, fill out all forms, write all necessary reports, and submit your initial application. If a denial is received our navigators are able to gather more evidence and submit a reconsideration request for the client. If the case goes into the appeal process or before an Administrative Law Judge our navigators can give referrals to the agencies who are able to help with this part of the process.
